Junk Car Removal Services in Texas: What to Expect When Selling Your Junk Car

So, you have a junker on your hands. What are you going to do with it? Unless you plan on restoring it or using in the demolition derby at an upcoming county fair, you probably plan on selling it to a provider of junk car removal services in Texas such as Wrench-A-Part. If so, you’re making a good decision. Salvage lots pays hundreds of dollars — and sometimes more — for junk cars. Just make sure that you’re ready for what the process of selling the vehicle entails. If this is your first time selling an automobile to a junk car removal services provider, below is an overview of how the process transpires.
You Make the Call
It all starts with making a call to the junkyard. If the make, model, and general condition of your vehicle interest the buyers at the yard, you will make an appointment for the car to be evaluated and priced. Don’t expect to receive a quote over the phone. They yard will need to inspect the vehicle firsthand before they make you an offer.
They Come To You
The buyer should travel to your location to make the evaluation. Most providers of junk car removal services in Texas bring a tow truck to the appointment in order to tow the vehicle after a deal is reached. Normally, the evaluation process doesn’t take more than a few minutes. A junk car removal services provider knows what to look for on the body of the car, inside the cabin, and under the hood.
You Give Them the Title
You need to present the title of the car at the time of the sale. Otherwise, the transaction will be illegal. If the title to the vehicle was destroyed, or you can’t find it, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for your state will tell you how to receive a replacement title. Documents that can take the place of a title are: an auction sales receipt, mechanic’s lien, storage lot lien, or repossession affidavit.
You Get the Money
After you give the junk car removal services provider the title to the vehicle, they pay you. Because you’re surrendering ownership of the vehicle to another party, you should receive payment on the spot. If a salvage lot says that they’ll mail you a check, don’t go for it. You should receive payment for the vehicle before it’s towed away.
They Tow the Car For Free
That’s right, your junker gets towed free of charge. It may seem financially unfeasible for the buyer to pay you for a junker and then tow it for free, but you can rest assured that the junkyard will still profit handsomely from selling the vehicle part by part. If a salvage lot tries to get you to pay for towing, don’t do it. The car should be towed at no cost.
